Dead Space the RE5 Killer?

DS reminds me of the old school SH games. we all know that the SH games are really moody and atmospheric and in these games you afraid of what u "cant" see bc its all dark and theres lots of creepy noises coming from everywhere and it gets your heart rate really high so high that u can hear your heart pounding in your ears. well thats exactly what DS manages to do really well. u exploring a ship infested with nasty n fugly creatures. u walking throu dark hallways and as u walk u see shadows hear weird sounds coming from behind you and that will keep you watching over your shoulder 40% of the game.
If u played RE4 u will remember the Over the Shoulder 3rd person view and if u shot your enemies in the legs they would fall down and u could take your time and finish em off. well u can do the same thing here except that u dismember your enemies. of course u can just shoot em in the chest but u dont really wanna do that cuz they can take 10 shots n still be trying to kill you. so here the dismember of your enemies takes a really important role bc after all this is a Survival Horror game u have to save every bullet u can. and belive me u gonna have a hard time finding ammo and supplies.
Besides your weapons that u find during the game. u get Special Powers... Stasis. u can paralize enemies for a few secs so u can take your time aiming and go for the head and save a couple of rounds or when u get outnumbered this can be a really usefull asset. one thing that i really love about this game is that u can get caught with your guard down really easily. you in a **** so obviously it has tons of ducts. so if u trying to take down a fow and u fail he can get into the vent system and appear behind you. so if you gonna shoot. u gotta shoot to kill cuz u dont really wanna be standing still in the dark looking for the enemi u couldnt kill and then get surprised by someone else or shooting some other alien n get caught or killed by the alien in the ducts.
So by now u must be thinking man this is a RE4-RE5 rip off. this game doesnt bring anything new. well it might be true but it is really fun. specially when u reach some parts where theres Zero Gravity. u can make some super jumps and theres lots of stuff floating around. specially enemies. and one thing that this game manages to pull really well... is to give you the Ilusion of safety. what do i mean? well when u think that u are safe in a room suddenly u have to face 3-4 enemies at the same time.
This game has some interesting Boss Fights i would like to give you some details but i think its better if i dont. the ending is really good. i really cant wait for DS2. i think DS could be GOTY material but too bad it wont be. too bad. anyways DS is a pretty solid game u should give it a try. at least rent this game u wont regreat it.
